    IconRotator

    Developer: Ryan Petrich | Price: free | Size: 5.0 KB | Repo: http://rpetri.ch/repo

    The apps and folders on your homescreen don't really do much. They aren't very interactive. Much like Graviboard, IconRotator adds a little liveliness to your app icons. It enables icons to rotate to the orientation of your device. Not only the homescreen icons, but apps in the multitasking switcher rotate too. (The Orientation Lock doesn't seem to have an affect on this tweak.) You will have to add the dev's repo to install IconRotator in Cydia: http://rpetri.ch/repo

    Lol, I looked at the screenshots sideways. BTW, I saw this yeteray, but it is a beta, is it buggy?

    When using 5 icons on the dock, the app labels were covered by app icons, but other than that, I haven't run into any bugs or glitches. Page switching, as well as using Infinidock to scroll through apps on the dock, work just fine.

    Does that mean if I hold my device sideways it'll be the correct orientation? I ask because the icons don't normally rotate on the springboard and this looks like the tweak to do it.

    Yes, that's the idea of the tweak.
